Happy New Year… poster

Ah! For a minute you thought I was actually wishing you a Happy New Year, didn’t you? Like you need ANOTHER random person forcing you to have a good year ahead and reminding you that it’s that time of the year again when you have to do-over your whole resolution thing. What was it again? Something about wait…no, weight… smoking… swearing. Ah fuck that shit, I’m sure you’ll remember over a pizza and a pack of Milds.

It is a mere coincidence that Farah Khan launched the poster of her film Happy New Year when all of us were recovering from the hangover that accompanies ringing in the New Year. The film is being labelled as a ‘musical heist’ to which I have to ask WTF? To add to that, Deepika Padukone is, supposedly, a dancer who trains the guys to win a dancing competition. Unless the competition was held in a vault or the loot in question is Ganesh Acharya, it beats me why you would need a skill set like dancing to pull off a robbery.

Is all black with blue shades the approved attire for con men? I don’t see any of our politicians wearing them so I’m going to blame this on lack of imagination and poor styling.

There are also autographed posters doing the rounds for Twitter users with the same message addressed to different people. If it were me who got the poster with same autographed message as some random @Pinky or @Sweetie, I’d torch the thing.

Apart for that, I can’t wait till Diwali. I hope it comes soon. Or not at all.

PS: See how I have completely sidestepped the issue of lack of posts? Thanks for the hate encouraging comments, though.

Phata Poster Nikla Hero

Whoever accused Bollywood of lacking subtlety should check out the poster for Phata Poster Nikla Hero. It requires a special kind of talent to literally translate each word of the title into an image that you then approve for your poster. I would never have thought to have the lead actor lunge at the audience through a torn poster. Genius. Just pure genius.
